Whitney Houston Previews Her New Album In The UK


Yesterday we saw photos of diva Whitney Houston making her fabulous arrival in London, England where she is doing some promo this week for her new album I Look To You, due out in stores in September. Today we get to see a few photos from an event that Whitney hosted, with music mogul Clive Davis, to preview some tracks of her new disc. At the event, a couple of promo photos were heavily featured … might one of them be the photo that will be used as her album coverphoto?

WHITNEY HOUSTON is clearly ready to dance with somebody again. Back in 2005, the singer appeared dishevelled and fragile following mounting rumours she’d become addicted to crack cocaine. Fast forward four years and Whitney’s resurrected the glammed-up pop diva who first shot to fame in the 1980s. Showing off a healthy complexion and classy clothes, the star was all smiles at last night’s London playback of her comeback album I Look To You – due for release on August 31.

From the Daily Mail: The 45-year-old arrived last night to launch I Look To You, her first studio CD in seven years, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London’s Knightsbridge. She wore a black belted mac which she removed once inside to reveal a flattering black and white Dolce & Gabbana dress. The crowd, including Top Shop billionaire Sir Phillip Green, gave Whitney a standing ovation. Tracks have already been leaked on the internet, where they have met with a mixed response – the most critical claiming her voice has been ruined. But music mogul Clive Davis, who discovered the soul diva 25 years ago, disagrees. “You won’t forget it after you hear it,” he said, calling the album a labour of love for all involved. “There is a song on this album which is called ‘I Didn’t Know My Own Strength’ and it really speaks for Whitney. She tumbled but she didn’t crumble.”

No question, Whitney cleans up very well. She looks fab. I cannot WAIT for her album … I’m dying. She looks pretty spectacular in these new promo photos … will one of them be her new album cover? It was previously announced on her official website that the album artwork would be debuted very soon … but we might’ve gotten a sneak peek in these new photos :)
